Heron the hermit

Here’s a young White Ibis losing its brown feathers and growing its adult plumage.

Walking around the pond at Indian Riverside Park, most of the birds are like the ibis, tolerating humans at close range.

Out in the middle of the pond, I zoom in to see the Green Heron keeping to himself.

This small heron is solitary at most seasons and often somewhat secretive, living around small bodies of water or densely vegetated areas.https://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/green-heron
